Permaculture is an ecological design system for sustainability in all areas of life including building natural homes, growing our own food, catching rainwater, building communities, treating wastewater and restoring diminished landscapes and ecosystems. The concept of permaculture is based on designing ecological human habitats and food production systems that are modeled on relationships found in the natural ecologies.
